Fit for Life! is an award-winning initiative which aims to get more transplant recipients more active more often.
Fit for Life! was introduced by the World Transplant Games Federation, proudly supported by Astellas, in 2016 with a long-term goal of improving health outcomes for transplant recipients through moderate, regular physical activity.

The program was developed because studies show that exercise and physical activity is linked to longer survival rates in transplant recipients.

For information on taking part in the next Fit for Life! walk in your state, contact Transplant Australia by emailing or follow us on Facebook.

Fit For Life! Australian & NZ Ambassadors

The Fit for Life! Ambassadors are transplant recipients chosen for their attributes of leadership, community-mindedness and inspirational spirit. They volunteer their time to the program to help transition other recipients from a life of sedentary and protective behaviour, to a full and active life post-transplant.

Ambassadors submit applications and are selected by a panel from the World Transplant Games Federation and Transplant Australia.

The current Australian and New Zealand Fit for Life! Ambassadors are: (Click for bios)
